Pool Removal PermitWe’ll submit all paperwork to the town for permitting. Once the permit is ready the town will notify both of us. This process can take about two weeks. Once the permit is in hand we can start removing the pool immediately.

Paving The Way - We begin by laying down a construction road from the street back to the pool. The road will be used to reduce the impact our equipment has on your lawn and underground utilities.

After the road is laid we remove any fencing, bushes, trees or limbs required to access the pool area. Once the path is clear we’ll begin.

Inspection -After the pool debris is removed, the empty hole must be inspected. This can take two to three days depending on the town.

Backfill – Once the township has given approval we begin to backfill the hole. Next, we’ll truck in compactable fill dirt to bring your yard back up to grade, making sure the surface conforms to the natural grade of the surrounding area.

Topsoil & Seed – Per your specification we’ll provide topsoil and seed to accommodate your landscape design.

Clean Up Time – When we’re done the work, we’ll back away from the pool area the way we came in, re-installing existing fencing and removing the construction road as we work our way back to the street. Before leaving, we’ll broom clean the street.
